The FISU World Forum 2022 opens on the theme of sustainability
The 16th FISU World Forum has opened today in Cartago, Costa Rica. Until the end of the week, the 160 participants from 45 national university sports federations will hold discussions and attend workshops and activities focusing on sustainable development.
“This is a topic of outstanding importance worldwide in and outside sport,”
“In order to preserve global resources in the long term, sustainability should be the basis of all political decisions – also in sport.”
FISU has integrated sustainability in its Strategy 2027, and it is also a leading theme of its Healthy Campus Programme. Recently, FISU also signed the UN Sports for Climate Action Framework.
And the winter edition of the FISU World University Games in Lake Placid in January 2023 will take place under the concept of “Save Winter”, in which climate change and impacts on winter sport will be addressed by the organisers.
